Event description

Description

Are you looking for an all in one school that also considers real-life learning and current events? A place where your community believes in concern for the earth, racial/gender inclusion and relationship skills as basic rights? This is open to students ages 9 to 12. If you're looking for that drill & kill, suck the life out of you learning style though, this may not be your spot. We believe children have a right to learning through challenge & exploration, failure & funk - that every moment is an opportunity to learn.

Join us on Wednesdays from 2p to 3pm for a learner-centered class focusing on empowerment:

The 16 Habits of Mind are habits of thought and action that help people manage uncertain or challenging situations. In everyday life we encounter problems, dilemmas, and enigmas. They can help you take action when there is no known solution to a problem. The Habits will help to support you in finding thoughtful and intelligent actions. Throughout this class you will be encouraged to learn through discussion, practice, and reflection.

The goals of this class are to:

• Explore & reflect on the 16 Habits of Mind.
Provide practice in using and thinking about the Habits of Mind.
Build a sense of empowerment through the application of new skills.

The 16 Habits of Mind are:

• Thinking about Thinking
• Remaining Open to Continuous Learning
• Thinking Flexibly
• Persisting
• Finding Humor
• Striving for Accuracy
• Listening with Understanding and Empathy
• Gathering Data through All the Senses
• Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision • Thinking Interdependently
• Creating, Imagining, and Innovating
• Responding with Wonderment and Awe
• Applying Past Knowledge to New Situations
• Questioning and Posing Problems
• Managing Impulsivity

Taking Responsible Risks

You will create and manage a portfolio for the Habits of Mind coursework. This course will end with a final cumulative project where you will share your understanding & experience of all 16 Habits of Mind.
